I have gotten up to 230 lbs. I want to be around 170 lbs. I have lost weight before doing low-carb, but have forgotten what to do. Is it low carb, high fat, or low-carb, high protein? How much do I need to eat of carbs, fats, proteins, calories, etc ? Running a lot, like 6 miles a day , helped me last time I was doing this and I got into ketosis. Just needing to know some basics before starting again. Thanks! What are some good foods, fats, ideas, etc.
some great ideas here
and if you search our recipes category, you’ll find lots of ideas
Usually it is low carb high fat moderate protein. I think it will vary for everyone. Good fats are olive oil, nuts, butter/cheese, coconut oil, omega3 in fish. Veggies are good, berries are low carb. I find a lot of fruits are ok for me. Fish and chicken are better than other meats if you eat meat.
will i need to lower my basal rates? i guess just keep an eye on them at least.
I would just keep an eye on things and adjust as you see fit.
do you try to get into ketosis?
@Cocheze is it ok for a diabetic to get into Ketosis do you know?
dietary ketones 1-3 …with normal blood glucose levels are fine.other than that T1’s would follow sick day rules
I don’t but a recent urine test showed I had +1
yes ketosis from lack of carbs but if you’re sugar is sky high then you could be in DKA
